Nkwazi Lake Lodge is a secluded nature retreat located in the wilderness of KwaZulu Natal’s Pongola Game Reserve. The lodge is elevated on a cliff that overlooks the Pongolapoort Dam (also known as Lake Jozini). It is made up of 12 en-suite chalets, each air-conditioned, with en-suite bathrooms, minibars, and tea-and-coffee stations. Each chalet also has its own private veranda from which guests can relax and enjoy the beautiful views. Enjoy a meal or a drink out on the dining deck after a day of exciting safari activities. These include game drives, guided walks, boating safaris, and rhino tracking. The reserve is home to a wide variety of wildlife species, including rhino, elephant, leopard, and giraffe.
Nkwazi is the perfect conference or team-building venue, with a fully-equipped conference centre and range of activities to choose from. It is also the ideal couple’s retreat (the elevated lodge position means that it is not recommended for children).

Why we like it

Nkwazi boasts a stunning location, complemented by comfortable accommodation and a range of thrilling safari activities. Rates are affordable, and the lodge can cater for conferences or team-building events.
